The Big Bang Theory continues into its sixth season and for the most part, its a positive one. Howard and Bernadette being married adds a new flavor, there are less awkward Amy/Penny ideas thrown in (Series 5 painting for example) and the whole Penny/Leonard will they?/won't they? has settled down so other elements of the series can be focused upon. It's still funny, there's some great episodes and ideas thrown in, Episode 8: The 43 peculiarity has more of an old-style Big Bang feel with the five core members going it alone and it benefits.

Several new dynamics also help the series avoid a pattern of diminishing returns. Howard in space provides some of the funniest scenes in the season for a start. Among the best additions to the series come in two new characters, Sheldon's assistant Alex who has won some of the fanbase over as a better match with Leonard than Penny - but that's later. The other who comes in at the latter end of the season is Raj's girlfriend Lucy. Lucy is one of the most interesting characters shown so far, socially awkward, timid but well-meaning and the two have quite poignant scenes together as they both have social anxiety issues. Combine that with some very creative episodes such as The Bakersfield Expedition where the guys are stranded on the way to Comic Con, The Closet Reconfiguration which hits a new level of depth concerning a letter from Howard's anonymous father. and others.

But Series 6 also has its problems. The dynamic between Penny and Leonard is not only tired and getting increasingly dull, but the relationship is one more spurned by jealously (Penny considers breaking up with him and then competition arrives in the form of Alex and she's interested).

A box set containing all twenty four episodes of Sit-com the Big Bang Theory. With all twenty four eighteen to twenty minute long episodes spread over three discs.

The amount of back story and character development the show has built up by now doesn't make this an entirely ideal jumping on point. But if you're reading this then you've doubtless followed the show all the way so far, so that won't be a problem.

This year sees Howard and Bernadette getting used to married life, which starts with the former in Space. Leonard and Penny's resurgent relationship face a few potential bumps along the way. Amy and Sheldon continue their somewhat unique dynamic. With the former never giving up on the chance of it getting more intimate.

Meanwhile Raj is just looking for love. And possibly finding it.

This season does a stronger job than the last two of getting all the increased cast involved. Amy is only missing from two episodes and Bernadette from one. Although said larger cast size does mean many episodes can involve splitting them up into separate storylines, and only every so often will you get one with all the main characters together and just one main plot.

Those who still hold out for the pre Amy and Bernadette days will probably like episode eight, in which neither feature.

But all in all, it's a very solid season and a slight step up from the fifth one as they get more used to the newer dynamics. As the characters get older they are now more focused on relationships than their hobbies of old - although the latter do still get a look in - so many storylines can be focused around such things. But they all work well.

Attempts to make Stuart more of a regular don't quite work out as he does initially get more to do.

In the cult tradition of SPARTACUS, the halls of every science department now echoes: "I AM SHELDON"!

Currently into its fifth season, THE BIG BANG THEORY proved to be one of the most funny TV sitcoms ever aired. Even if the show seems to have slowed down form its initial explosive impetus, I had not laughed out loud this hard ever since the best days of FRASIER and SEINFELD - and BIG BANG is **consistently** brilliant!

Sheldon Cooper is unavoidably the king of the show - the massive black hole this Universe revolves around if you will. A child prodigy, now theoretical physicist PhD in his 20's with absolutely no social skills or known sexual drive. Sheldon may be on the verge of unifying the fields but cannot drive a car to save his life or break a smile even remotely resembling that of a mere homo sapiens.
His equally super-intelligent (yet sexually frustrated and somewhat confused girlfriend), Amy Farrah Fowler, received a far more enlarged role this fifth season. Even if her addition opened up some girls-night-out moments, she was not a very good addition and she unbalances the show. Her character only manages to blur the focus form Sheldon (there is only room for one idiosyncratic genius!), diffuse a number of comically charged situations and gum up the show's flow.

Leonard Hofstadter is Sheldon's roommate and primary ...keeper. An experimental physicist himself (who Sheldon tries to "help" by steering him towards a teaching career), he juggles Sheldon's idiosyncrasies with his personal neurosis - not to mention his crush on his neighbor Penny. Which crush, like lunar eclipses, follow a predicted yet unavoidable periodicity.
